What is box 11 Exempt interest dividends

This is confusing. Is this box 11 amount the same as U.S. Government obligations?

2 pages later where it has the first box asking if a portion of these dividends are U.S. Government Interest, does this mean a portion of those exempt dividends in box 11?? So the exempt divs are the total amount for all states and then i figure out what part was for my state i guess and that is the amount i put in there?

Also, for one of my investments the inv co sent a form with the % of u.s. obligations by fund and some of those funds i own, but there was nothing in box 11 for exempt dividends on the 1099-Div.  Shouldnt there be an amount in box 11 if one of the funds i own has u.s. obligations?  maybe i need a tax accountant. this is giving me a headache.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
